Beware of Bunions

Experiencing a lump on or near your big toe? Has it gotten to the point where it’s difficult to put on shoes and it emits pain when touched? Then you likely have yourself a bunion.

Bunions are deformities that commonly grow at the base of the big toe. The most likely cause of bunions is when the foot is squeezed into narrow toed shoes. This causes a fluid-filled sac that cushions the toe joint to become enlarged and inflamed. Wearing a better fitting shoe can relieve the pressure and pain, but a doctor visit is recommended for treatment.
